Galton made several contributions unrelated to intelligence testing that were taken up in psychology. Describe these contributions and their significance.
Blake however is quite different and is deep in a different way. But here he uses a very negative tone to help convey his point. The whole way through he continues his downbeatoppressive tone and describing everything that’s wrong with London. “And mark in every face I meet, Marks of weakness, marks of woe.”- Commenting on how everyone in the city are the victims of an endless work, to keep the city running constantly, he describes how this is sucking out the souls of people the more they work. Blake also seems to use a downbeat negative tone to give an actual gloomy effect. He says…”how the youthful harlot’s curse, blasts the new-born infants tear”. That line basically means that teenagers are forced into prostitution for money and how if they are impregnated without a father then that child is doomed to be the son of a prostitute. The child is born into a life of poverty and the cycle just keeps going on and on. Wordsworth- possibly because of a better upbringing, has a more positive outlook on life and can find it easy to see most things in their own kind of beauty. Unlike Blake who found it hard not to look at the landscape itself but see everything wrong with what it stood for- “And the hapless soldier’s sigh, Runs in blood down palace walls.” From ‘London’ instead of marvelling at the palace like Wordsworth would have done- he looks at it and ‘reads between the lines’- how soldiers are sent to their deaths, and how the city profits from it. In conclusion I think that Blake and Wordsworth are similar in styles on writing but believe very different things. Blake was thought mad by many but I think he just had strong thoughts coming from his own experiences. Wordsworth on the other hand was simply a very philosophical poet, in many of his poems going into a trance-like state “seeing the inner beauty of things.”>GET ANSWER
